Assassin’s Creed: 5 Must-Plays & 5 That Suck

Take a Leap of Faith with us, join the brotherhood.


The Assassin's Creed series has gifted fans with glorious reconstructions of lost cities and landscapes to get themselves swept up in.

Offering a slew of engaging narratives carved around vital moments in history, our adventures began with Altair - our first protagonist in a more linear tale - all the way to present day, and the more expansive open worlds of recent titles in Origins and Odyssey.

Innovative movement and engaging storytelling, Assassin's Creed also set the standard for parkour-led gaming.

And such a carefully crafted game deserves a deep dive into what makes an essential piece of any Assassin's Creed storytelling. This also serves as a handy guide as to which of these titles should make it onto your pile of games to get to - we've all got that pile after all - and it only grows and grows.

But not every game can make it. For example, an honourable mention to Assassin's Creed Revelations - a game that, while bolstered by solid mechanics and a sound story, offered many of the same aspects we see in Brotherhood.

Now, take a "leap of faith" and join us on a journey as we let you know what titles you MUST tackle on your play through of the Assassin's Creed games.
